Review proposed plans to add additional surface parking.
 
Mr. Milanich reviewed the proposed plans for additional parking and stated that the additional lot would look better than what currently exists.
 
In answer to Mr. Milanich's question, Sister Agnesmarie stated that the need for additional parking is due to new regulations in increased staffing for children with special needs. She further stated that the enrollment of students has not changed, but the staffing has increased. She also stated that additional parking is needed for everyday operations, not just for special programs, and for safety reasons. She then stated that presently, the additional teachers are parking in the fire lane, at the top of the hill, and against the playground area.
 
Mr. Ciunni, engineer, stated that due to the challenging nature of the site, it was difficult to keep green space in that particular area, but did manage to maintain as much as he could.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo comment on the amount of trees to be taken down, Sister Agnesmarie stated that many of the trees slated for removal are diseased.
 
Mr. Brian Worsdall, Property Manager of Julie Billiart School, stated that some of the healthy trees will be located to other parts of the property, and that many of the trees will be replaced.

Review proposed plans to erect permanent banners on flag poles.
 
Mr. Kevin Fromat, ASI Signage presented a conceptual sign showing the design of the permanent banners.
 
Mayor Cicero stated that this proposal was before the Planning Commission and approved in conjunction with the existing electronic sign on the corner of Richmond and Cedar Roads. He further stated that the Planning Commission recommended approval to Council because they felt the banner signs fit the character of Legacy Village.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question, Mayor Cicero stated no variance is needed; Council approved the permanent banners and the electronic sign in ordinance form as it was presented to them.
 
Ms. Marcie Gilmore, General Manager, stated that the masonry at the base of the pole is the exact same material that is on the existing electronic sign. She further stated there will be seven (7) poles with banners on the property.
 
Mr. Milanich stated that he feels that the proposal shows a double banner on each pole, due to the logo being on one side of each pole.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question regarding the time limitation of one year, Mr. Puskas stated that that the Building Department will continue to monitor the time frame.
 
Ms. Gilmore explained that the reason for the proposed banner signs is for advertisement of the various establishments located in Legacy Village.

MINUTES:

 
The Architectural Board of Review met in Regular Session on Thursday, March 15, 2012, at 7:30 p.m., in the Conference Room of the Lyndhurst Municipal Center, 5301 Mayfield Road.
 
Members Present: Tom Milanich, Chairman; Mayor Cicero, Nicholas DeBaltzo, William Tamerlano.
 
Member Absent: Councilman Marko
 
Others Present: Tom Kunz, Building Commissioner; Larry Puskas, Building Inspector; Councilman Ward.
 
It was moved by Councilman Ward, seconded by Mr. DeBaltzo that the reading of the minutes of the Regular Meeting held November 17, 2011, copies of which were mailed to all members, be dispensed with and said minutes stand approved as circulated.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed with Mayor Cicero abstaining.
 
Motion carried.
 
Formerly Amy Joy
5076 Mayfield Road
 
Review proposed new business identification sign.
 
Mr. Kunz explained the proposed sign at the corner. He further stated he is concerned about the orange color of the proposed sign, that they will not match the existing signage on the other storefronts. He then submitted pictures of an existing A T & T ground level sign located in Mayfield Heights, and an existing sign at Legacy Village. He also submitted pictures of the adjacent buildings.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question regarding the proposed five (5') feet by ten and a quarter (10.25') foot sign, Mr. Kunz stated that the proposed sign is in conformance.
 
Joe Frizell, Ace Lighting for AT & T, stated that the fascia, on the front to the west side and the entire fascia on the west elevation will be painted orange, and be the background of the proposed signage, which is part of the A T & T logo. In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question, he stated the fascias are on the same plane.
 
Councilman Ward clarified that there are two issues that should be discussed; the proposed signage and the painting of the fascia, which is an architectural feature of the building. He stated that he feels the proposed orange fascia is not appropriate, it does not fit the style of the building, and it is not in keeping with the adjacent buildings' colors. He further stated that painting the fascia orange would detract from the colonial ambiance of the structure.
 
Mr. Frizell stated that the color orange is the A T & T corporate identity. He further stated that he would consider an orange awning instead of the orange background on the fascia, where the sign would be placed.
 
Mr. Milanich explained that a lot of time and work went into the beautification and continuity of signage along Mayfield Road. He concurs with Councilman Ward, stating that orange is an inappropriate color for the colonial style building.
 
In answer to Mayor Cicero's question regarding the Mayfield Heights store, which does not have orange on it, Mr. Frizell stated that when the signage was installed on that particular building, orange was not being used.
 
It was moved by Councilman Ward, seconded by Mr. Tamerlano that the proposed A T & T logo and signage be approved as presented on the north and west building elevations and the existing monument sign, pending the building signage is placed on a completely white background consistent with the architecture of the building.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried.
 
Formerly Russian Tea Room
5100 Mayfield Road
 
Review proposed new business identification sign.
 
Mr. Steve Eisenberg presented a rendering of the proposed sign for the western elevation.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question, Mr. Eisenberg stated the sign cabinet will be flush against the fascia, with no gaps. He then presented proposed sign materials.
 
Mr. Eisenberg said that he understands the need to update the identity of the property. In the future, he will seek approval for the consistency of signage at the Crossroads.
 
It was moved by Councilman Ward, seconded by Mr. Milanich that the proposed business identification sign to be located on both the front and western elevations, for 5100 Mayfield Road, be approved as submitted.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried.
 
Georgetown of Lyndhurst
29033 Cedar Road
 
Review proposed addition to existing party room.
 
Mr. Eli Mahler stated the Georgetown complex would like to add extra room for physical fitness equipment in the party room for use year round. He further stated that the proposed brick, the style of the windows and the asphalt shingles will match existing.
 
In answer to Councilman Ward's question, Mr. Mahler stated that the current roof is approximately fourteen (14) years old. He then stated that the roof will be a reverse gabled, so the new roof will not be on the same plane as the existing.
 
In answer to Mr. Milanich's suggestion about using another material besides brick, due to the difficult nature of matching older brick, Mr. Mahler stated that the original building was all reclaimed brick, and since has found a company that sells reclaimed brick, and will match the brick, whether using new brick or reclaimed brick. He further stated that the wall is offset to create a bit of a shadow.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question regarding the patio, Mr. Mahler stated that the existing patio is slab on grade and the rise between the patio and the proposed addition is approximately four to five inches. He then stated that a control joint will be provided or the grade will be recessed a couple of inches.
 
After discussion, it was moved by Councilman Ward, seconded by Mr. DeBaltzo that the plans for the proposed addition to the existing party room at Georgetown of Lyndhurst, 29033 Cedar Road be approved as submitted.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried.
 
Mayfield Country Club
1545 Sheridan Road
 
Review proposed plans for a new indoor recreation facility.
 
Mr. Jim Wallis with Perspective Architecture, presented a proposed site plan and gave a brief overview of the history of club. He stated that the country club would like to build a new indoor tennis facility. He explained that if this proposal is approved, it would give Mayfield Country Club an amenity that no other club in the area has. He further stated that the proposed building will be located where the existing four (4) outdoor tennis courts are currently. He further stated that there are currently two grass courts, which will be demolished and in its place will propose five (5) new outdoor courts, for a total of nine courts - four (4) indoor, five (5) outdoor courts. He then stated the proposed building will be one level.
 
Mr. Jim Wallis gave a description of the proposed building, stating that it will be a thirty-five thousand (35,000) square foot metal building system; the base of the building will be masonry. He also stated that there will be extensive landscaping and mounding around the site as well as creating an entrance feature for the patio. He then stated that the parking lot in the front of the proposed building will be slightly reworked, and should only lose about three (3) spaces. He reiterated that this is a very simple building, and will try to keep it as simple as possible.
 
Mr. Wallis explained that trying to tie the proposed structure into the existing structure was not architecturally appropriate, so that is why it was designed as presented. He then presented color and material samples to the Board.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question, Mr. Wallis stated the proposed color for the window framing will be dark brown.
 
It was moved by Mayor Cicero, seconded by Councilman Ward to approve the proposed plans for a new indoor recreation facility at Mayfield Country Club, 1545 Sheridan Road as presented.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried.
 
It was moved by Mr. Milanich, seconded by Mayor Cicero that the meeting be adjourned.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried, meeting adjourned at 8:10 p.m.
